At KYCU, he was the staff meteorologist, anchor and reporter.

He was also part of the News 12 team recognized by the New York Press Club for coverage of severe storms which hit Yonkers, in July 2009. That coverage was also nominated for a New York Emmy Award.

John and his family now live in Putnam County. His favorite non-work activity, other than his family, is photography and the study of history, especially the American West.
